Nowadays, most companies truly interested in creating real DEI change have hired a Chief Diversity Officer. However, many CDOs are struggling to reach their goals.
“Companies’ top diversity executives too often lack the power or resources to effect real change.”
The number of employees with the title “head of diversity” has spiked by 104% between 2015 and 2020. Although finding someone to lead diversity initiatives is the first step, it’s not enough. Without the appropriate tools and power, Chief Diversity Officers will be unable to execute their roles’ work and fulfill their purpose. While each Chief Diversity Officer faces his or her own organizational challenges, a lack of access to CEOs and other executives as well as difficulty finding critical data are just a few reasons behind the high turnover rates being seen within DEI positions at companies.
That’s where ideascape comes in. Our membership allows CDOs and other DEI leaders to identify and resolve pain points efficiently, keeping focus on the true goal – increasing diversity, equity, and inclusion.
